  • Started brewing back in the nineties, in Oslo/Norway, using extract kits. I brewed for my annual x-mas party. Brewed a few batches of wine too. The results were not very consistent and I gave up. Not many sources of good info back in those days. Internet was something we had only heard of. Craft beer interest grew from 2007 onwards when I had moved from Ireland to France where I got exposed to French and Belgian ales with plenty of taste (and alcohol). From being interested, seeking knowledge led to sources such as the Jamil Show and this home b rew forum, and started to gather the pieces and build up my home brewery. Brewing in my garage with a cheap, manual, home-made setup, based on gravity, electricity and gas.

    Brewer's friend water profile calculator has a function for "boil water". Boiling water is
    supposed to rid off temporary hardness, leaving the permanent hardness components intact. From
    what I underst...

    More on-topic, I had someone rather knowledgeable tell me that "steeping" was using water below
    155°, and "mashing" used water 155° or above.:(Steeping in the context of brewing, means to
    make an infu...

    Cheers! Second last bottle on top of the box, very last bottle inside. (Latter also goes for
    the Aryoung's dunkel). The Old Imposter has aged exceptionally well, and tackled oxidation like
    a nice port...

    A little update at my end. The label doesn't look so great after several months storage in my
    cellar, but the beer is still good. Flavors have mellowed and changed quite a bit, I now pick
    up a licoric...

    Awesome! From your photo, the color looks pretty much like mine. Did you use a mix of lager and
    ale yeast? Also, I have a box of both beers waiting to ship your way since a few months, but
    for some re...

    I guess since I wrote the recipe I should brew it at some point. Your description is pretty
    enticing. If the beer is still tasty 6 months out from brew day, that's a good sign. In the
    spirit of the or...

    After lagering for over a month at 2°C, this was dry hopped and bottled, still at 1.020. The
    result is not very good, due to the yeast profile. It's really not the clean lager I hoped for.
